MORLEY WALKER / BOOKS

At least he hasn't swapped any fire-hall property

Penguin Canada is promising "shocking new revelations" in a book about controversial Toronto Mayor Rob Ford being published next March. Crazy Town: The Rob Ford Story is being written by Toronto Star reporter Robyn Doolittle, who has been covering the mayor since his days on the Hogtown city council. In recent months, Ford has been accused in the press of everything from being drunk on the job to dealing drugs in his youth.

Gang o' bong

You may have heard production has started on the movie Trailer Park Boys 3: Don't Legalize It, a comedy that reunites underachieving criminals Julian, Ricky and Bubbles. The title takes its inspiration from a plot twist in which Ricky, finally making a decent living growing marijuana, goes to Ottawa to protest an upcoming bill that would legalize pot. Notably, the Canadian release date --April 18, 2014 -- is timed to coincide with the weekend of April 20, the national day of marijuana celebration. Now that's marketing.

It's a family affair

There probably isn't a folksy, family-friendly old saying to describe this situation, but there should be -- you know, the family that's scheduled together stays super-cool together, or something like that. Wednesday has become an all-Amell evening on CTV and the CW, with Stephen Amell returning as star of the dark-hero saga Arrow (right) and cousin Robbie Amell joining the lineup this fall as star of the rookie drama The Tomorrow People. The young actors were born in Toronto, but both would no doubt like to call prime time home for as long as the ratings allow.

Break a leg

Winnipeg's two largest theatre companies and the oldest running stage company in Canada open their 2013-14 seasons this week. On Oct. 17, the 56-year-old Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre is poised to go down the rabbit hole with the venerable comedy Harvey, while across town Prairie Theatre Exchange, 41, launches with Daniel McIvor's promising laugher The Best Brothers. On the other side of the Red River, Cercle Molière begins season 88 on Oct. 18 with the Canadian première of the Paris hit Le Père.
